Barry Feldman contacted me a while back to ask about my experiences with SlideShare.
We’ve had well over 1 million views on our We Are Social SlideShare account, and it’s become a cornerstone of our marketing, so he was curious to know if I had any tips on what makes a SlideShare deck ‘dazzle’.
Barry also collected tips from a number of his favourite SlideShare contributors, including the wonderful teams at Slides That Rock and Marketing Profs.
He collated these tips in this insightful post on the SlideShare blog a couple of days ago, but I couldn’t resist turning those tips into a deck of their own.
So here they are, uploaded to SlideShare in a (hopefully) dazzling deck of their own.
And true to the tip that I offered Barry, you can download the complete deck by clicking this link.

Thiago Krafzik used a quote from brand interpreters on his não esquece blog, illustrating it with a beautiful video that I couldn’t resist reposting here:
Many thanks to Thiago Krafzik for the intro.
Most of us are familiar with the idea that a picture is worth a thousand words.
But some pictures tell entire stories.
The illustration above, by Christoph Niemann, is certainly worth a few thousand words.
In fact, I’d go so far as to suggest that it expresses more than words ever could.
And that’s the key to strategic communication – finding the most efficient and effective way to establish a common understanding.
The ideal means for a specific end.
See more of Christoph’s fantastic work here - I especially liked this image from his children’s guide to learning Chinese characters. I discovered Christoph thanks to ffffound! – a great resource for regular inspiration.
